I stink at this blogging stuff...and other updates

Hi there! How was your Thanksgiving? I have been so busy with craft show preparations, holiday cooking and traveling that I have neglected the blog for the past couple of weeks. I figured I better check in so that anyone stopping by doesn't think I left town!

I'll update you on a few things:

1. The Annual Sauquoit Valley Fine Arts and Crafts Festival was a success! I partnered with my friend Amber, who handmakes wool products. Her dryer balls sold out quickly both days! Some of my most popular items were my sugar scrub/salt soak sets, beeswax lotion bars and avocado salve.

I don't think these pictures really do it justice, but our setup looked really nice!

2. My sister and her husband came to visit over Veteran's Day. Emily has a top-of-the-line camera (and actually knows how to use it!). She helped me take some great product photos.


I used many of her photos to update my Etsy listings. If you haven't been to my Etsy page lately, please stop by.  I am getting a lot more traffic now that I have some professional looking photos!

I have been hesitant to blow up Facebook with a million posts promoting my products and Etsy pages. People are so inundated with advertising, that I fear my messages will get lost in the shuffle. If you are looking for natural, handmade products for you friends and family, please consider an essential8 product. Everything is handmade one batch at a time.

Until next time....happy shopping!
